Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

Cert Logos Color

The City of Arlington Fire Department is pleased to announce 2 upcoming offerings of CERT Basic.

The CERT Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.

The next CERT Basic Training will be June 1, 2, 8, and 9, 2018. You must complete all four dates to receive the course completion certificate. Registration is open for our June CERT Basic training.
